The 10,000 Toes Campaign
In an effort to stamp out diabetes in the South Pacific, the 10,000 Toes Campaign is raising funds to aid in its prevention and treatment
South Pacific nations have the highest prevalence of diabetes in the world. As a result of this the United Nations reports that diabetes and other non-communicable diseases are one of the greatest threats to the regions development.
The 10,000 Toes Campaign supported by ADRA aims to save the lives and limbs of those affected.
ADRA, the Adventist Development and Relief Agency, is a humanitarian agency operated by the Seventh Day Adventist Church who also owns Sydney Adventist Hospital.
The project will be providing diabetes diagnostic kits for blood sugar readings, educational resources to help reduce the amount of people with diabetes, as well as training doctors and nurses to be able to diagnose and detect Type 2 diabetes early and offer a holistic approach to treatment.
The campaign has currently raised over $150,000 to go towards the project and is now asking you to join the movement.
You can create a short 60 second video highlighting the crisis of diabetes or you can register your interest to walk the Kokoda Track in July 2019.
